BANDAI TV Jack 5000
The TV Jack 5000 from Bandai released in 1978 is one of the first cartridge based system from Japan. It's the equivalent of european and american systems like the Hanimex SD-050, Acetronic Color TV Game, Prinztronic Micro 5500, SHG Blackpoint, Binatone Cablestar, Radofin telesports, etc. There have been tons of systems like these. The TV Jack 5000, like all these systems, use cartridges based on General Instruments chipsets which offers different games on each chip. That's why all these sy...
OLIVETTI  A5
Olivetti introduced a mainframe about 1960 which was called ELEA, then in 1965 the Programma 101 - which was probably the world's first real desktop computer. Then a little later they introduced the Audiotronic range of "office computers". The first was the A770, which was replaced by the A7. The A5 was the desktop version. The Olivetti Audit 5 or A5 was largely an electro mechanical computer. It printed via a golf ball typewritter mechanism at the astonishing speed of 16 character per second...
TRIUMPH ADLER  TA-1600
The TA 1600 system was introduced in 1983 at the CeBIT (which was only a part of the "Hannover-Messe" by that time). TA showed a few sample applications and the 1600 family in general. Triumph Adler's hardware included also the 1600/20-3 which was supplied with a permanent-swap-HDD-unit. This unit had a memory/storage capacity of 2 x 8 MB (Winchester technology). Triumph Adler said the system (the 1600) will fit the demand of medium-sized businesses, due to the facts that these companies w...
MIDWICH Microcontroller
Called the Midwich Microcontroller, this British computer was developped to provide a small desktop micro capable of running other equipment throug a variety of interface cards. In 1979 an Italian IC manufacturer designed and began to sell a single board micro system that could be expanded to a full system with a VDU, discs, etc. Called the Nanocomputer, it was manufactured by SGS Ates and one of the distributors in the UK was Midwich. The Nano was somewhat expensive and suffered from a numbe...
RADIONIC Model R1001
This is an extremly rare TRS-80 Model 1 clone, based on an other clone: The Komtek 1 (from Germany). It's equiped with a Level II basic and powered by a Zilog Z80 cpu. _________ Contributors : Incog...
BASF 7100
The BASF 7000 systems are professional computers from Germany. They seem to be based on the Microterm II Intelligent Terminal by Digi-Log Systems, Inc. There were several models in the 7000 serie....
PERTEC PCC 2000
PCC 2000 is a professional computer released in 1978. It was designed in 1978 by Pertec, the company which merged with MITS by the end of 1976. The PCC is conceived as a monobloc machine, where the display and two 8" floppy disk drives are built-in the main case. The mechanical keyboard offers separated numeric and editing keypads. The system is powered by an Intel 8085 microprocessor and offers 64 KB RAM. The whole thing was apparently delivered with an extended Basic language, which has...
UNIVERSUM Multispiel 2006
Basic pong system based on the popular AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments....
TERTA TAP-34
TAP 34 is a self design of Terta company from Hungary. Primarily it was designed as a terminal for big computer systems but it was also able to process data alone. The main integrated circuits were assembled in the USSR and in Hungary by Tungsram, but several parts were imported from other countries. The built-in monitor was a DME-28 monochrome CRT made by Orion. This company was famous for its televisions in Hungary and the other KGST countries. The floppy drive attached to the compute...

ADDS Mentor 2000
There is almost no information available about this M2000 minicomputer. ADDS (Applied Digital Data Systems) was a subsidiary of NCR Corp. The ADDS Mentor 2000 is a serious multi-user business machine the size of a small refrigerator. This system runs the "PICK" operating system. If you ask knowlegable people what "PICK" is, some will say "Operating System" (OS), and the others will say "Database Management System" (DBMS). Both are correct, the PICK operating system is designed around a power...
CORVUS SYSTEMS Concept
The Concept system was intended to be an individual diskless workstation operating within a Local Area Network (LAN). Each user could use the ressources of the computer and share both data and peripheral devices, including mass storage devices. The network connected computers offered some attractive cost advantages and allowed several people to work simultaneously on the same task. Users' data were shared through the Corvus OmniNet networking system which was the core product of Corv...
AMSTRAD  464 / 6128 Plus
These Amstrads were the successors of the Amstrad CPC 6128. Amstrad tried to prolong the life of the old 8-bit Amstrads, which suffered from competition with the new 16-bit home computers (like the Amiga and Atari ST). Amstrad made some important modifications to maintain the level of its machines, the CPC 6128 Plus became 95% compatible with the CPC 6128 (using the same operating systems AMSDOS and CP/M 3.0). However, some software did not run on the plus ran...
SHARP  MZ 700
The Sharp MZ 700 series replaced the aging MZ 80 (MZ 80K, MZ 80A and MZ 80B) series. Moreover, the MZ 700 was compatible with the MZ 80K and MZ 80A. The MZ 700 series is composed of four machines: the first three models were launched in 1983 (November 1982 in Japan) and the last one was launched in late 1985 (in fact, this one is the "ancestor" of the MZ 800): - the MZ 711 was the "nak...
UNIVOX 41N
The Univox 41N is a classic pong system sold in France. It can also be found worldwide under many different brands, as the Grandstand T.V. Game Model 2000 for example, or the Intel TV Sport 1004 in Germany (1977). It seems to have been quite popular as many for them were found in french flea markets and boot sales. The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600". Indeed many Gamatic 7600 systems identi...
CODIMEX 6809
The Codimex 6809 is a brasilian clone of the Tandy TRS-80 Color Computer. After the success of another brazilian Coco clone, the Prologica CP-400, several brasilian companies tried to release their own compatible system. The Codimex 6809 is one of them. It has nothing quite special and doesn't seem to innovate at all... Anyone has more info about this system ? Source :
COMMODORE  PLUS 4 - C232/264/364
Among the Commodore news from the Summer CES 1984 was the renaming of the C=264 to Plus/4. This renaming came along with a slight change in the built-in software: you could not choose between many different programs anymore, but each Plus/4 was delivered with the 3-plus-1 software. The built-in software is not worth the silicon it is etched in: a word processor (only with 40 columns and can manage documents with only 99 lines of 77 columns), a very small spreadsheet (only 17 columns and 50 li...
SHARP  AX 286
Very little information about this japanese computer. It is a PC compatible laptop. It has no floppy disk drive built-in but a 20 MB hard disk inside. It was also called MZ 8376 (Perhaps it is the last member of the MZ series ?)....
TANDY RADIO SHACK  TRS 80 MODEL 16
The Model 16 was the same as a Model 12 with the 68000 add-on. It was launched a few time after the Tandy TRS 80 model IV. The Z80 processor was used for I/O. Up to four hard disks could be connected (8.4 mb each). It was compatible with the Tandy TRS 80 model II thanks to the Z80 and could run the Model II operating system. This 68000 chip set and associated memory were much more than a speed ...
R2E  Micral 8020 Series
This computer was basically the same as the Bull 80/22. However, the machine seems to have been designed by the team of R2E after the company was bought by Bull in 1978. It was first designed as an opened business system intended to be integrated into company networks. However, some time later, Bull got a significant part of the French educational market, so the R2E system was adapted to meet the Department of Education requirements and became the Bull 80/22....

PRINZTRONIC Videosport 600
Also the prinztronic videosports 800 has 6 games, not 8. Find some photos on the web to confirm it.

I have found on the web another console with the same shape but 10 games. I do not know the name and haven''t found any reference about it

SORD  M23 Mark III
SORD was imported into the UK by Exleigh Business Machines (EBM) of Penzance. A small number of machines were re-exported to Cyprus. There is further information on SORD, mainly M5, on this page http://www.binarydinosaurs.co.uk/Museum/Sord/index.php

G.Z.E. UNIMOR Bosman 8
Bosman has two 3" floppies, not 3.5" - it was the same floppy drive as used in Timex FDD 3000. Itself it has no graphics card - it uses terminal (ANG-2001 - text only, ANG-3001 - text and graphics). It has 512KB of RAM, paged as 60k blocks (not 64 - 60!) - top 4KB was reserved by OS, RAM over first 64K was used as internal disk.

Monitor connector is DB9, but it is used for video signal AND power drawed from power supply in monitor.

I heard there was a version without floppy - for network usage? I can''t confirm - I haven''t seen any.
